This is a very rare and very limited talismanic quarter-leather edition of The Toadman, by Nigel Pennick, which was published by the Society Esoteric Endeavour (S.E.E.), in 2012. According to the copyright information, this book was written, in its completed form, in 2010, but obviously, it has taken a couple of years for it to see the light of day! When it was finally released (a few weeks ago), there was a mad rush to obtain the 150 copies that were made available, and judging by the number of inquiries that I (and other successful purchasers), have received in the past few weeks - these books are worth their weight in gold! They look & feel fantastic, with the toad quarter binding to the spine, giving them that extra-special look & feel. Having just received this, I have not had a chance to read it yet, but I have browsed through the contents, and provided a few photos, of some of the illustrated pages, to give you a feel of the breadth & depth of this book. This book is in mint condition, is bound in quarter leather, including toad leather used on the spine, green cloth covering the boards, and goat leather on the oval onlay on the front board, with gilt titling to the front & spine. This beautiful book features marbled endpapers, measuers 18.5 cm x 16 cm (approx), has about 140 pages of text, and is numbered #66 of 150. All 150 copies sold out within hours of being first announced.
